palin, more people watched that debate than watched president obama -- then senator obama and senator mccain. tonight, of course, biden will be facing off against ryan. we'll see if there's as much interest on the part of the public but certainly on the part of the campaign there is intense interest. biden has to reverse the slide of support that has occurred since president obama's lackluster performance when he faced off against mitt romney in the first debate. and ryan will be trying to make sure he doesn't go off message that he maintains a very strict discipline with respect to mitt romney's positions. ryan of course has put forth some budgetary proposals that romney has said listen, i'm the guy in charge, i'm going to be the one who will make sure that the policies that are in place will be my policies. so ryan is going to have to make sure he is in sync with romney. but all in all, you know, romney has the momentum now and we'll see how it turns out tonight. >> you talked about the strategy. we are watching the presidential debate and there weren't too many sparks flying in tha

senate. to date you would say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context,

chief for president obama and steve beshear is the i will plus illustrious governor of the state of kentucky. how can you get elected in this state and mitch mcconnell is your senator. >> kentucky is a bits schizophrenic. we voted for carter and then voted for reagan and then voted for clinton then we voted for bush. we go back and forth on the national scene. >> what are you going to do this time? >> stephanie, thanks for joining us. stephanie cutter has been out there all the time. give me a sense, if you can, of the feeling of inside chicago, inside the headquarters. >> well, you know, chris, it's the same as it has been for months. we have always said and always believed that this is going to be a very close race all the way up until election day. the president wasn't happy with his debate performance. he is looking forward to the next debate to, you know, take romney on, clear up some of those facts that romney wasn't so clear on, and, you know, we're working hard. >> what do you think about -- governor, what do you think about romney's performance last week? i thought it was d

pennsylvania, by a polling firm i trust, john mclaughlin that shows that romney is defeating obama in pennsylvania by 49-forty46. smith's running very close to casey for the senate. ryan needs to keep that momentum up approximate this election could be over. i think the big thing is the contrast between the politician and a policy person. a young person and an old person. i think on both scores, ryan will really help romney. we have to realize how much of obama's appeal is generational. when you you are putting on a v.p. debate with a 25 or 25-year, i guess, difference in age, and one who is kind of a haggard regular old-time bomb baftic politician, and the other, a very incisive, sharp, focused policy person, i think that you really are going to see ryan have a tremendous edge. the other thing is that ryan wrote the romney program. this is not just a candidate for v.p., his the intellectual leader of the republican party today. for him to be up there debating in a political debate is like, you know, it's like mickey mantle coming to bat because he -- he wrote all of these programs. h

aggressively than president obama did. the president picked up the phone aboard air force one today to wish his veep luck on the way to campaign event many miami, where democratic senator nelson had a blunt prediction. >> tonight, joe biden will make mincemeat of paul ryan. [ applause ] >> reporter: no easy task for the vice president. even though he has more experience in debates. >> his convention speech, joe biden, portrayed a president who is engaged, up to the minute on events, who is versed in policy issues. that is not the president we saw on the debate stage in denver. >> reporter: top democrats privately say the biden game plan is to focus on the top of the ticket, hitting romney by going after the target rich ryan budget. strategy the obama camp signaled with a web video today. >> they haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> reporter: biden, though, could be on defense because unlike the first debate focused only on domestic issues this time half of the agenda is foreign policy. so the door is wide op

once and that person didn't get to the senate, so he didn't try again. so president obama said he cares about campaign finance regulation has actually done very little. >> i walk in off stage better get your response. >> with got to keep this out of respect for the audience of a lot more questions. >> the mere fact the crew think something violates the law doesn't mean that it does. the fcc is the agency, the enforcement agents do with presidential employees that determines what the regulations are and when something violates the law. anybody can file a complaint with the fec. that doesn't mean someone violated the law and i hope we are all glad that is the case. it's what the plaintiffs in a judge will force the law because he was against me. the fec does not deadlock frequently. it does about three or 4% of the time. it virtually never comes up. we can go on and on and on and on almost every point. melanie, frankly don't have a clue as to what goes on. that's the fact. you don't know which are talking about. >> i would refer not to go down the road because there are more questio

increase. that's a great plan. obama wants higher tax rates, and schumer, the leader in the senate, made that clear as well, so it's between romney wanting to cut your tax rates and obama wanting to increase your top tax rates. that's the difference between the two parties. >> all right. dean baker, get you into this discussion. you know, dean, the brookings institute supports lower tax rates and knocking out deductions. that's what they want. everybody in washington except team obama. obama's idea, and biden's idea is to jack up tax rates for the upper end. lord knows what they are going to do with deductions. that isn't tax reform. they are the odd people out. >> well, lord doesn't know what governor romney wants to do. that's what we're trying to figure out. maybe representative ryan will be able to tell us tonight because the point was he's saying he wants it to be revenue neutral. he's told us how much he wants to cut taxes for the wealthy, and then he says he's not going to eliminate the tax deductions for middle-income people. that doesn't add up. >> it does add up. i've got
